Impromptus and Moments Musicaux
Franz Schubert's piano works belong to pianists' core repertoire and of course, to Henle's, too. Our catalogue contains almost all of Schubert's piano compositions. This volume contains the piano works that are played the most: the two collections of four Impromptus (D 899 and D 935) as well as the six Moments Musicaux (D 780). Our edition was first printed in the year that the publishing house was founded, in 1948. The editor and person who provided the fingerings was a pianist who is still greatly admired: Walter Gieseking. Here you can listen to him play Schubert himself. We have made numerous “cuttings” from this main “plant”; single editions with the identical musical text of the Impromptus op. 90, No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 as well as the Moments musicaux.
